Mexican foreign policy.
Representatives of Mexico on February 6 called upon Venezuela’s government and opposition to enter into dialogue to resolve their country’s deepening political crisis. Mexico has refused to join regional powers in condemning the Venezuelan government, or in recognising opposition congressman Juan Guaido as interim president, as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) attempts to refocus Mexico’s foreign policy stance on the principles of non-intervention, pacific conflict resolution and development cooperation. According to Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico will limit its role in the international sphere to work on three key issues -- protection of human rights, strengthening of democratic values and action on climate change.
